1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Description:

There was just something a bit meaner about the restyled 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. So when you can find one so highly original, this sleek V8 T-top machine is instant attraction at a value price. There's something very distinctive about the factory-correct Solar Gold. It created one of the coolest coordinating packages around when combined with the darker gold hood bird and golden snowflake alloy wheels. So it was sort of like a custom car straight from the factory. This one amps up the appeal because it's a one-owner machine, and the paint and all the trimmings are original! In fact, the finish shows some of its age, so people will start the conversation that lets you tell them this is a four-decade survivor. More than just the history, this has all the elements we love. The widebody appearance is pure aggression - the headlights are individually separated; there are large flares for each fender; and the spoiler covers the rear from end-to-end. And everyone loves the attitude that comes from the side scoops and the shaker hood. Inside the camel interior is a great complementing color to the exterior. Let's face it, when you have a T-top T/A like this you're going to want to keep it open to the world. Another feature to have when the T-tops are out is the cloth bucket seats. After all, you'll never be afraid to hop into this one wearing shorts. There's even factory air conditioning so you can stay open to the world long into the summer season. Just like the exterior, the interior feels quite original. So you'll be impressed with the overall level of preservation. Plus, you'll also love how it's loaded with features like power windows, tilt wheel, electric rear defrost, and an upgraded Pioneer AM/FM/cassette stereo. The driver gets to face iconic components like the Trans Am's special three-spoke steering wheel, cool machined aluminum dash, and optional Rally gauge package. The 403 cubic-inch V8 is original to the car, and it has an authentic appearance right down to the decals. And while the shaker hood might be a display piece, it's just sooooo cool. The tidy appearance suggests the power plant has been treated to good regular maintenance, and the way it fires up easily reinforces this careful life. The motor makes great muscle car sounds out of the dual exhaust, and it moves the car with authority. The Trans Am has a reputation for not only being quick, but also as one of the best all-around handling sports cars of its day. Plus, this one has long-haul comfort thanks to a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission and power steering. Finishing off this driver-friendly package are power brakes w/discs up front and sway bars front & rear. A distinct classic like this needs the right paperwork, and so the sale comes with the factory build sheet, original warranty card, bill of sale, owner's manual, and service manuals. Even the original T-top storage bags are included! This is a rare opportunity to get a survivor-grade example of one of the coolest classics around. Don't miss your chance, call today!
